The legal profession as a whole largely falling well into the "them and us" group, and once admitted you can pretty much do anything.

 

A Glasgow Sheriff was caught in a brothel only wearing a towel.

 

"

SHAMED Lothian is not the first member of the judiciary caught in a sex scandal. Sheriff Hugh Neilson, 56, was suspended after he was found wearing just a towel when police raided The Royale Club in Glasgow in 2004.

The married church elder gave the bizarre excuse he was only at the brothel for a shave. But the Sunday Mail revealed he had paid for sex in the past - and he confessed to visiting saunas on four separate occasions.

When quizzed, Neilson, below, told how one girl had rubbed her breasts up and down him and said: "I had sexual intercourse with her. I paid for it."

He resigned from his s119,000-a-year post at Hamilton Sheriff Court.

"

 

It can be found here - rather appropriately just next to the bottom...

He claimed he was only in for a shave!

 

He was paid £40K whilst being investigated.

 

Then resigned just before the investigation concluded.

 

He then admitted he was in the brothel for the same reasons everyone else goes to brothels.

 

So lying, obtaining money by deception, and an assortment of potential questionable verdicts given his lifestyle.

 

After resigning the church elder then found work with Harper McLeod (Harper's dad was a bible thumper too).

Yes, I'd noticed last year, or perhaps even earlier, a solicitor of the same name as the esteemed Mr Crossley on the books at Rodney Warren's south coast law firm:

 

http://www.rodneywarren.co.uk/our-legal-team/

 

and thought that the description of their Mr Crossley, as well as the photograph of their Mr Crossley:

 

http://www.rodneywarren.co.uk/our-legal-team/andrew-crossley/

 

was uncannily reminiscent of the pathetic wreck of a shyster said by his peers to have brought the entire legal profession into disrepute.

 

Given so great an insult to the standing and repute of lawyers everywhere, it was quite clear to me that no law firm with any respect for itself or its clients would ever consider having such a (literally) disreputable character on its books.

 

I concluded, therefore, that the formerly bankrupt Andrew Crossley who specialised in civil litigation designed to intimidate and harass for financial gain is absolutely not the same Andrew Crossley who specialises in Civil Ligation and only has the best interests of his clients, and the larger public, at heart.

 

It's all pure coincidence.

It may be he is atoning for his past sins and is now working under supervision and then hoping to be reinstated to the SRA roll. He should have faced justice in a courtroom as once lawyers get sent down that is the end of the road for them but the CPS is happy leting the SRA deal with things that are righty in the CPS demesne
